Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s baby boy may have a name fit for a king

Arthur is the top pick for the newborn, according to U.K. bookies Ladbrokes and Sportsbet, followed by James.

Harry and Meghan welcomed their bundle of joy on Monday morning. 

“I’m very excited to announce that Meghan and myself had a baby boy early this morning, a very healthy boy,” Harry said Monday in a brief announcement. “Mother and baby are doing incredibly well.”

Harry said they’d had time to think about the baby’s name because he was overdue. The couple is expected to reveal the baby’s name soon.

Prince William, Prince Charles and Prince Louis all have Arthur as a middle name. 

On Wednesday, the new family will make their first appearance together.
